For anyone still languishing back in the analogue dark ages, Meeja Grauniad's got a report on where individual countries are on the digital switchoff
Finland's set to be first to go in 2007, a year ahead of its near neighbour Sweden in 2008. Which is interesting, because Sweden's still only got half a million subscribers out of a shade under 4 million TV households.
Anyway, the EC has set a 2010 switchover target and the dates expected by country at the moment are:
2008: Norway and Italy.
2009: US and Denmark
2010: France, Germany, Belgium and Spain
2012: UK, Australia and Austria
Now, given that the UK pretty much leads the world in digital penetration, something tells me that some of those dates might just slip...
